Today on InTheMix with Rafia we have Allie, owner of Lash Club LA telling us all about the fabulousness of lash extensions.
Allie has over 11 years of experience as an esthetician, lash and makeup artist. She knew early on that her passion was making the women of the world feel beautiful. Eyelash extensions are a beauty trend that has been around for a while but is just now getting some true exposure and steam.
Eyelash extensions are used to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. The extensions may be made from three types of materials; mink, silk and synthetic. The lashes are applied one at a time using a specific type of semi-permanent glue and typically last around 3 weeks before needing a touch up.
